3 Summit Activation 14 April 2013

On the 14th of April I tagged along with Paul VK5PAS with his 3 summit activation of:

  • VK5/SE-017, South Hummocks.
  • VK5/SE-015, Bumbunga Hill
  •  VK5/SE-014, Illawarra Hill.

Paul put together a video of the activation, that shows most of the happenings on the day.

Everything worked well and I was very impressed with Paul’s the 20/40m inverted V 7m off the ground. KX3 made it though 3 activations with a lot of QSOs being made and the mic swapped between Paul and myself, My log had 45 QSOs in it + Paul’s operation not bad off a set of 8 internal 2400NiMH Cells. We swaped to the 817 for the last few 20m QSOs after the KX3 output power started dropping.

It was a pleasure operating with Paul and I hope to do it again. 73 de VK5AKH. Andy
